exhaustionI’m back!

The process of switching I, Cringely from Media Temple to WP Engine, which was supposed to take a few hours, ended up taking more than a week!

Poor Jennie had to do the hard work, schlepping over thousands of files from a server that continually crashed. There may be an easier way to do it but we don’t know that way. Then WP Engine ran a security upgrade in the middle of our transition, freezing us out of the system because we were neither here nor there. My nemesis CloudFlare didn’t want to give up the DNS and when we finally got it switched it for some reason took two days to propagate.

But enough of this complaining: sometimes these things are just what you have to endure.

Of course it happened right in the middle of one of the busiest technology news weeks in a long time so I have a lot of catching-up to do. Over the next 2-3 days you can expect posts on the future of Ethernet, layoffs at IBM, the NSA of course, and even Apple’s WWDC.

It’s good to be back.
